To those to whom these words come, greetings from Olwynn ni
Chinneidigh, Laurel Queen of Arms and Juliana de Luna, Palimpsest
The Laurel office is starting to review our policies and procedures
for submissions. We expect that the eventual outcome will be a
complete rewrite of the Rules for Submissions.
To start this process, we're asking the populace and heralds to give
us feedback about the heraldic submissions process and how it should
work. A survey which asks some basic questions can be found at
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GLJZDDZ; we'd appreciate it if
interested people would take time to answer the questions there.
Anyone can complete this; we promise to read all answers. We expect
the survey to take fifteen to twenty minutes. Additional comments
about or ideas for this process can be sent to rules@....
We have several goals for this process:
- to make the Rules for Submissions easier to use for heralds and
- to reduce discrepancies between the Rules as written and the rules as applied
- to reflect on the degree of authenticity we want for the
registration process and how best to codify rules to evaluate it
- to reconsider the level of difference we should require between
names and devices for registration
In all areas, the Society for Creative Anachronism has moved towards
progressively better understandings of what people did in our period.
Given this, we are not interested in discussing rules changes that
would substantially lower our standards for registration of names and
armory. But we are interested in exploring ways to make it easier for
people register items that are in period style, whether or not they
fit the rules as they currently exist. We welcome ideas about how to
do that from all sources.
We look forward to hearing from you! The deadline for the survey is
January 31; we will continue to accept comments by e-mail until the
review of the rules is completed. Please forward this message to other
mailing lists, so that as many people as possible can respond.
